Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream started interviewing the Fire Emblem Warriors developers following the release of the game’s DLC packs. For the first discussion, producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Hiroya Usuda were brought in. The two discussed how the game was received, the additions of Azura, Niles, and Oboro, how the inclusion of the Armor Strike system came to be, and more.

You can read our full translation of the interview below. Stay tuned, as we’ll have the next interview focusing on the Shadow Dragon DLC Pack soon.

With the Switch starting to reach its first anniversary in some parts of the world, owners noticed an issue with the display of their play times. Instead of showing the proper count, games like Zelda had their totals wiped. Even if you played the game for 100 hours, Switch instead shows that it was “First played 0 days ago”.

One of the theories discussed is that this could be a bug. Nintendo has yet to confirm that officially, but the company has now commented on the situation.

Recently announced for Japan, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy for Switch will be getting a western release as well. We’re waiting to hear about North America (presumably we’ll have news later today), but the European launch is also confirmed for April 26. It will be digital-only, unlike Japan.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a compilation of the first three Ultimate Ninja Storm titles that lets players relive the story of Naruto Uzumaki from his days at the Ninja Academy to the 4th Great Ninja War. The package will include many of the DLC released for the original games such as Saskuke’s kimono costume, and allows fans to choose between heroes and villains like Naruto Uzumaki, Saskuke Uchiha, Pain or Obito Uchiha to lead into battle.

We have an English trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy below.

The Switch doesn’t have a traditional activity log like the 3DS, but play time is recorded. If you visit your profile, all of the games you’ve booted up will be listed along with how long you’ve played them.

Unfortunately, with Switch reaching its first anniversary in some parts of the world, users have discovered that their play times are being reset – or at least showing that way for now. For Zelda: Breath of the Wild for example, profiles are displaying “First played 0 days ago” instead of the proper hours count.

Update: Full patch notes added in below.


Original: Following a delay, Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s big update is here. Players can now access version 1.3.0.

As mentioned previously, this is a massive update that adds New Game Plus, an Easy Mode, and more. We’ll add in the full patch notes here as soon as we have them. For now, we’ve added in an overview of the update from director Tetsuya Takahashi below.

[Review] Subsurface Circular

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: March 1, 2018
Developer: Bithell Games
Publisher: Bithell Games


With the growing popularity of Switch, developers all across the industry are seeing just how big of an impact Nintendo’s newest console is having on the market. As a result, the system has received an influx of not only third-party developed games, but also a barrage of creative and imaginative indie titles. One such title, Subsurface Circular, is now making the jump to the Switch after its initial release in August 2017. Developed by Mike Bithell Games, the same developer responsible for Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular takes an interesting approach to one of the earliest video games genres ever created: the text-based adventure.

Bandai Namco has gone live with the first trailer for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy on Switch. We have the video below.
